    Kodiak voters may face a ballot measure related to bonds this fall. An ordinance that would approve the issuance of bonds for school improvement projects passed the first reading of the Borough Assembly during its regular meeting last night.
    The ordinance now moves on to a second reading and public hearing, and if approved will appear on the October 7 borough ballot.
    Then, if passed by voters, the borough would issue general obligation bonds in the amount of $10,230,000 for about 28 school improvement projects ranging from Peterson Elementary School flooring replacement to Karluk School playground equipment replacement. Other projects on the list include Main Elementary School gym floor replacement, Kodiak Middle School Underground Storage Tank replacement and bus ramp roof replacement, among many others.
    Assemblywoman Chris Lynch said she was in favor of the ordinance because the borough owns a lot of buildings that require regular maintenance.
    “And once you’re a building owner you need to repair and maintain your buildings. This is the most cost effective way to the tax payers for us to keep our buildings in shape so that we’re not replacing and building new buildings every 15 years.”

           Folks driving on Rezanof between Piers II and III may have noticed some work being done on the Pillar Mountain hillside lining the road. Rick Ryser is the owner of Golden Alaska Excavating, the company that was contracted by the State Department of Transportation to remove a portion of the ever-growing rock slide and clear up space behind the retaining wall along the road.
           Ryser said rocks have been falling down that hillside for the past 40 years, and built up behind the rock wall to the point where it had become a safety hazard for drivers.
            “The last two to three years they were actually going out on the road and a car actually got crushed from one of them.”

Coming up this week, it looks like king salmon on the Yukon have returned in slightly better numbers than expected, a form of whale repellant is being tested by fishermen in Southeast, and Ketchikan doubles-down on shellfish production. We had help from KNOM’s Matthew Smith in Nome, KCAW’s Elizabeth Jenkins in Sitka, KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in Ketchikan, and KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak.

           It’s Relay for Life time again in Kodiak. Each year hundreds of community members take to the Woody Way field and participate in the 24-hour relay while raising funds for the American Cancer Society. This will be the 8th year for Kodiak’s Relay for Life and more than 16 teams are signed up.
            Angela Graham helped organize the event and said this year’s relay will be superhero-themed. She said they are hoping to raise $50,000.
            “It’s a community event that we can all get together and stand behind those who are fighting cancer, we can with the people that have survived cancer and we can hold the hands of people that have lost somebody to cancer.” 
            Still, fundraising is the goal, because Graham said the American Cancer Society provides a lot of financial support to Kodiak families that are fighting cancer, including airfare to and from off island appointments.
            “There’s all sorts of services once you get to Anchorage for the Kodiak folks. There’s wigs for those that lose their hair that need that option. So the money goes into so many different avenues of getting rid of cancer.”

           Graham added that research is included in that.

Pasagshak Drainage Closing to Sockeye Angling PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 July 2014

    Poor escapement has claimed another popular sportsfishing spot on Kodiak Island. In an emergency order today (Wednesday), the Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced the closure of the Pasagshak River drainage to sportfishing for sockeye salmon. It goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and is closed until further notice.
    According to Fish and Game figures, the escapement goal for sockeye into the Pasagshak River drainage is 3,000 fish, but as of Monday (July 14), the weir count was just 410 sockeye salmon.
    As a result, and based on historical run timing, the department is not projecting the Pasagshak system to meet its goal.
